Fall Depth Chart Projection: 1st team defensive tackle
Spring Review: With at least 26 players sidelined at some point over the spring, this will sound like a recurring theme throughout these spring reviews - Sanders sat out a majority of the practices with a calf muscle injury. He did dress out a couple of times near the very end, but he didn't do a whole lot. What stood out is that he is probably in the best shape physically that he has been in as a Gator.
Fall Projection: He was probably the biggest surprise on the defensive side of the ball last year. One year earlier, he was on the verge of transferring, but he was able to work through it, get in better shape and become a solid contributor. While he is a space eater on the inside against the running game, he gets very little push up the middle in pass rushing situations. That is the area he needs to work on to become a more complete lineman.
